Three grown-up males with a long-lasting history of rather uniform, unilateral headache in the ocular-periocular area, in cluster fashion, are examined. Pain paroxysms of short duration (15-60 sec) appear up to 5-30 times per h. The headache is unilateral without side shift. Conjunctival injection appears at the very beginning of the attack and is partly(More)
Information obtained from the case-records and completed questionnaires from 478 patients operated in the 5-year-period 1980 through 1984 with either septoplasty or submucous resection (SMR), has been analysed on an average 31 months after surgery. Two hundred (42 per cent) underwent SMR and 278 (58 per cent) septoplasty. Twenty per cent presented for a(More)
The effect of oral anticholinergic drugs has been limited in the treatment of drooling. Transdermal scopolamine (1.5 mg/2.5 cm2) offers advantages. One single application is considered to render a stable serum concentration for 3 days. A distinct reduction of basal salivation was demonstrated in an open trial of six healthy volunteers. Eighteen mentally(More)
Self-reports after whiplash often indicate associations with vertigo and reading problems. Neuropsychological and otoneurological tests were applied to a group of whiplash patients (n = 26) and to a carefully matched control group. The whiplash group deviated from the control group on measures of eye movements during reading, on smooth pursuit eye movements(More)

Autonomic functions have been studied in seven patients with chronic paroxysmal hemicrania (CPH). A test battery comprising tearing, salivation and nasal secretion was employed. Under basal conditions these parameters did not differ significantly from those in a control group. After stimulation with pilocarpine the patients responded rather inhomogeneously.(More)
Evaporimeter measurements of forehead sweating during attack were carried out in six female patients with chronic paroxysmal hemicrania. The patients served as their own controls. Increased sweating on the symptomatic side was found in two patients, both when compared to the non-symptomatic side during attack and when compared with the symptomatic side(More)
Sweating in the forehead, on the eyelids, in the face and on the trunk was measured with the Evaporimeter during 31 spontaneous cluster headache attacks of varying severity in 18 patients. The evaporimeter measures evaporative water loss (sweating + transepidermal water loss) rapidly and accurately as g/m2/h. The patients themselves acted as controls.(More)
Two new chronic paroxysmal hemicrania patients are described. In both, attacks can be precipitated mechanically by applying firm manual pressure to certain sensitive points on the neck, i.e. in the C2 area, in the transverse processes of the C4-C5 vertebrae, or beneath the posterior part of the skull on the symptomatic side. The most sensitive area seems to(More)
